Nick promotes talent exec

Antony began career as intern for cabler

Nickelodeon has bumped Justin Antony to the position of talent veep for Nickelodeon/MTVN Kids and Family Group, putting him in charge of all live-action talent relations for the cabler.

Antony has covered talent relations and management for virtually every live-action show that it has launched in the last decade, including “iCarly,” “True Jackson, VP” and “Victorious” as well as the Kids’ Choice Awards, according to Nickelodeon. His new duties task him to increase the performers’ profile onscreen and elsewhere, interacting with various Nickelodeon departments such as consumer products, digital and international.

“Justin has helped Nickelodeon manage a roster of talent that includes some of Hollywood’s brightest young talent like Miranda Cosgrove, Victoria Justice, Emma Roberts, Drake Bell and Josh Peck,” said Nick/MTVN Kids senior talent veep Shelly Sumpter Gillyard. “His work with emerging and established talent has been a tremendous asset.”

Antony, whose career began as a Nick talent department intern, most recently was Nick/MTVN Kids director of talent.
